Earth's Survivors: Rising from the Ashes
Earth's Survivors: Rising from the Ashes | Geo Dell, Andrea Scroggs
1 post | 1 read
The end has come for most of the world's population. Small groups of survivors are picking up the pieces... Learning to live again... When the sun began to peek over the top of the ridge on the opposite shore of the Black river, everyone filed out to the two remaining trucks. It had been decided that Mike and Jan would stay behind while the others went in search of the stolen truck. They switched on and tested two sets of F.M. radios. The range is normally only about two miles or so, but its not like theres anything to interfere with them anymore, Tom said. Well take three with us, and you keep the other here to monitor us, or if they come back here, Tom finished. Do you think thats a possibility? Janet Dove asked. I doubt it, Dear, Bob told her with a reassuring smile. Its just to be safe. Mike walked over to Candace. Her eyes met his. He kissed her softly, and her arms slipped around him. Dont worry, she whispered, Ill be careful. And Ill make sure theyre careful. She kissed him and pulled back. Mike stared at the face of the two way radio for a long second and then watched her get into the Suburban. Bob got into the front seat with her. Her eyes met his once more, and she smiled reassuringly, then started the Suburban and fell in behind Tom as he drove the big State truck out across the pavement. Mike and Janet stood quietly as the two trucks drove away. Neither of them wanted to go back inside the cave. The sun was up and warming the old asphalt of the road where it passed in front of the cave, and what little snow remained was already beginning to melt. Left here, The radio squawked. It sounded like Lydia. Behind you, came an answer that sounded like Bob. Mike shifted the 30-30 Deer rifle he held in one hand and thumbed off the strap that held his Nine Millimeter in his web holster. Janet Dove grimaced and then thumbed the safety off the shotgun she was holding. A short clip protruded from the base of the shotgun, just forward of the trigger. She had two more clips in a small pouch on her side, as well as a fully loaded Three Eighty in a tooled leather side holster she wore. What must we look like, Mike thought. Aloud he said, Theyll be fine. Really? Janet Dove asked. I truly hope so. I truly do. ~ The next twenty minutes went by slowly. Occasional squawks of directions came from the radio, and in the distance the sound of both trucks could still be heard. The silence broke all at once. The radio squealed in Mikes hand. One word jumped clearly from the static Jesus! Mike couldnt tell from whom. A crashing sound accompanied it, and in the far distance gunfire erupted in the still, previously quiet morning air. The squeal from the radio abruptly cut off and it fell back to low static. In the distance the sound of gunfire continued for what seemed like ten minutes, but was probably no more than thirty or forty seconds in reality. Mike keyed the radio, Candace, he screamed. Candace? Gunfire broke out again in the distance. The fast POP, POP, POP of semi automatic gunfire, but the sharp crack of a heavy rifle too. No answer came back over the radio. Janet Dove made a small strangled sound in the back of her throat and a low sob slipped from her mouth. No, God, no, she whispered.
